Dental Implants Procedures
Have you ever had a conversation with someone and felt like they were staring at your shifting dentures? Or, have you been out to lunch and found it difficult to eat hard food? Do you have sores in your mouth that hurt every time you eat? Do you avoid most social situations because of your dentures? Are you tired of awful tasting denture paste?
We can help with our traditional or mini Dental Implants (866-490-4537). It only takes a few hours of your time and you can go right back to your normal routine. You can eat shortly after your dental implant procedure, and most people return to work the next day. The actual procedure for putting in the dental implants usually takes less than an hour, is minimally invasive, fast & virtually pain free. Dental implants have been one of the most significant advances in dentistry in the last 25 years.
The main benefit to Dental Implants is they prevent bone loss to the upper and lower jaw bones by having to support the jaws working against each other. Jaws bones without implants exhibit a bone loss of a staggering 10% per year!
Mini-implants are suitable for people who have had dentures for years and have experienced a significant amount of bone loss in their jaws. These can be installed in one visit and can be used right away.
Dental implants are as close to natural teeth as you can get functionally, and have helped people regain their smiles and their confidence. We have many different choices and we can help you choose the best implant for your mouth, depending on the amount of bone available, your general health & restoration preference.
Dental implants are so secure that you can eat whatever you want. You no longer have to avoid eating raw vegetables and other hard foods due to the not being able to chew properly. Unlike the standard removable dentures, the implant supported denture is secured to implants and function like natural teeth. Implants can also be easily removed for cleaning.
You have to take very good care of them and brush and floss them very carefully so as not to damage the implants. The implants do not decay which saves money on future dental visits.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement, made of titanium (which is not rejected by the body) that bonds to the jaw like the root of a natural tooth. It is a comfortable alternative to traditional dentures and an excellent solution for people who have loose, poorly fitting dentures. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support missing teeth.
With proper care, dental hygiene and healthy eating your implants can last for your lifetime. In the past 30 years, hundreds of thousands of patients have been outfitted with dental implants that are still functioning and it is rare that they fail.
There are two main purposes for Dental Implants:
1) Single or multi-tooth replacement
2) Denture-supported implants
There are many other benefits to dental implants. They include: maintaining and realigning facial structure and profile, and can help preserve the adjacent natural teeth. Traditional removable dentures place stress forces on surrounding natural teeth which may also cause issues with gums and overall dental care. Dental implants can also prevent the appearance of premature aging due to bone loss that can be accelerated with patients using traditional removable dentures.
Implants may also be used for various reasons; failed root canals, inadequate root size/length, missing teeth, fractures and improve your overall dental health by replacing removable structures with comfortable and permanent fixtures.
After implants are inserted, the bone is allowed time to heal around it and support it, then the crown or bridge can be placed over it. The implants are virtually hidden and no one will know that you have one except the people you tell!
Denture Supported Implants are normally inserted into the front of the jaws to support the dentures. Where mini implants are being placed because of low bone density, normally four are placed in each jaw. A minimum of 4 are required in the top jaw (due to more bone loss), and a minimum of two are required in the bottom jaw. Where there is more bone, more or full-implants may be used.
